1. When did you first start writing?


I really started to commit time to writing every day back in 6th grade, I think? It was fanfiction, mostly. And then I had this really great idea (fyi: not that great, actually) so I wrote it, and then I wrote another idea. Then another. Soon, I found myself in writing competitions, and then finally with an agent. And now, hey, look at me! (Still writing fanfics, obviosly.)


2. Did you always know you wanted to write?


Short answer: Yes. Definitely.


The long answer is: I also wanted to be a marine biologist, and an egyptologist, but I learned quickly that researching and writing about manatees and ancient pharaohs is a lot cooler with an English degree.


3. What is your favorite color?


Purple. It will forever be purple.


4. How did you get published?


Wrote a novel, revised, submitted to fantastic agents. Rinse, repeat, until satisfied. Results may vary.


5. Can you help me get an agent/published?


No, sadly. There are so many hours in a day, and while I would love to help in any way I can, I simply do not have the time or energy. But Google is a good friend! It's where I learned everything. Go, young padawan, and learn.


6. Who is your agent?


The indomitable Holly Root at Waxman Leavell!


7. Can I get an ARC of your upcoming book?


Possibly! But I don't have the power to give out ARCs. Sling an email over to the publisher of the novel of mine you want to read, and they can help from there!


8. Can I interview you for my blog?


Maybe! It depends on what events or deadlines I have going on at the time. But it never hurts to ask! Just pop on over to my Contact page!


9. So, what do you do when you're not writing?


I game a lot! I used to live-stream on Twitch, but I haven't found the time recently. I might take it up again, though. Who knows!


10. Do you have any other books coming out?


Yes! HEART OF IRON, my space pirate rip-your-heart-out-and-watch-you-bleed-out Anastasia retelling comes out from Balzer + Bray in Winter 2018!
